Ah. It’s been more than a week since I last posted anything! God. Time flies, doesn’t it? Oh well.
I wanted to continue on my blog series but I think I’ll abandon that for now, cuz that’ll take WAY too much time, and I think I’m having writer’s block at the moment.
Not much is going on, besides that fact that I’ve convocation in two months, unable to find a job that will take me out of here and shifting house (yet again ==ll). Well at least I’ve managed to find a job to get by these first (not of many, I hope) few months.
Nothing is going according to plan, but that’s expected. If everything goes well for people like me then there would be no countless surveys asking wth m’sian grads are frequently unemployed.
Then there’s the thing with money. Even though we are fresh grads, even though we are jobless, and even though we do not have independent means of income, the stupid uni for god knows what reason keeps on badgering us for money.
We have to pay to graduate?? WTH?
Wasn’t the THREE YEARS of yuran we paid you enough???
When a letter bearing the uni’s official stamp was delivered I was like:
Yay, finally I get the itinerary to the upcoming convocation.Then I spotted a red colored paper inside. I thought:
wow, so thoughtful. They even included an invitation card.
Turns out it was a note asking for our graduation fee.
My GOD. Use RED some more. You think you are loan shark meh??
Then few days later the second letter arrived, I thought: Oh, so got itinerary one lar?
To my dismay it was just my final semester transcript and…
…wait for it…
YET ANOTHER form asking for money, this time it was “optional”, asking if I would like my certificates laminated at 3x the market price.
I didn’t want to pay it.
Then my mom said,
never mind lar, let them laminate, then at least if they rosakkan your cert they will ganti.
Ceh. I don’t wanna stay here.
